Overview

Katie is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Child Mental Health Research Group. She is currently working on a project with Place2Be, a children's mental health charity who work with pupils, staff and families in UK schools.

Katie's PhD explored the association between emotional disorder and school absence in children and young people. Her PhD was supervised by Professor Tamsin Ford, Dr Obi Ukoumunne and Dr Darren Moore, and was funded by the University of Exeter Medical School via a Wellcome Strategic Award on resilience in young people.

Her broad research interests are: child mental health, particularly depression and anxiety; mental health in schools; the overlap between mental health and education; the relationship between mental and physical health; epidemiology and quantitative research methods.

Katie previously worked as an Associate Research Fellow in the Complex Interventions Research Group on an NIHR-HTA funded trial of Behavioural Activation versus Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for adults with depression (the COBRA trial). Other roles included working as a research assistant in a secondary care mental health trust and as an assistant to a forensic psychologist.
